Our SEO audits are completed by our in-house SEO team. We take a systematic approach to ensure we are covering all the factors that influence search rankings for your particular website.
We harness an arsenal of SEO audit tools, checklists, and software to pinpoint elements that could be impeding your website’s enhanced organic performance. Our analysis also includes benchmarking your competitors, particularly in areas such as site speed and backlink profiles, enabling you to comprehend why they might be outranking you in search engine results.
As a technical SEO consultant, we utilise the most advanced SEO analysis tools to identify issues and uncover valuable data. We then translate these insights into a detailed and prioritised action plan, which is discussed with you.

Our SEO specialists invest their expertise to ensure the audit improves your SEO performance and guides you in making informed decisions.
In our SEO audit service, we cover a range of areas. You can explore what makes up these sections below.

In the Local SEO section of our report, we conduct a focused analysis of how your website performs in local search results. Through a technical SEO audit, we assess what you’re currently doing effectively and identify what you could be doing to enhance your local presence. We closely look at areas such as:
Improving your search engine optimization (SEO) can drive organic traffic to your website, but a positive user experience is crucial to converting these visitors into customers. Even if you rank well for your target keywords, without a strong user experience, your website’s performance may fall short in conversion.

What Access Is Required to Carry Out an SEO Audit Service?
What Happens After I Get My Audit?
Should you want us to enact the changes suggested in your SEO audit, we’re equipped to do so. This could form part of a regular monthly SEO strategy or we can perform certain tasks on an ad hoc basis. Some recommendations such as keyword research may be one-time actions, while others may be ongoing.
For instance, producing high-quality content is an ongoing task essential for SEO performance. Search engines favour websites that frequently update with valuable content. Whether you decide to create content or need assistance, our team of specialist writers stands ready to help, delivering top-tier content for our clients as part of our SEO audit services.
Who Implements the Recommendations Set Out in the Audit?
The choice of who implements the audit’s recommendations is entirely yours, with no obligation to use our SEO audit services for any of the work we identify.
Depending on your specific audit results, typically SEO-related tasks will be performed by technical SEO consultants, experienced web developers, and content writers.
If you’re equipped to handle any or most of the tasks we identify, that’s brilliant. All that’s required is the time, know-how, and skills to execute the work accurately.
How Long After Implementing the Recommendations Would I See Results?
This will depend on how many recommendations you decide to implement. Normally our priority actions will give you some quick wins such as adding internal links, while other recommendations may be more of a longer-term game. Check out our SEO scams to avoid hiring an SEO agency that promises the world, but doesn’t deliver.
What If I Don’t Want a Comprehensive Audit but Would Like Specific Areas Looked At?
We are happy to customise our SEO audit service to fit your requests. You may have a specific problem you want investigated. Or you may already be aware of the errors on your site and simply want advice on how to fix them.
Why Opt for an SEO Agency Over Online SEO Analysis Tools for My Audit?
While online SEO tools can be useful, without an understanding of technical SEO, interpreting the errors and implementing solutions can be challenging.
Think of it as self-diagnosing an illness online – it’s often confusing and could lead to unnecessary worry. Going to a doctor you trust can quickly pinpoint the right course of action for you. In the same way, an SEO agency like ours, offering professional SEO audit services, can accurately identify your website’s SEO issues and prioritise actions effectively.
Web developers, while instrumental in fixing technical SEO issues, aren’t always SEO experts. It’s possible for a developer to unintentionally create the very issues they’re later asked to solve. Our technical SEO audit team not only identifies and understands these problems but also communicates them clearly to the developers, ensuring proper resolution.
Automated SEO tools often fail to prioritise the issues, which can lead to impractical and costly solutions. We focus on prioritising significant issues and suggesting cost-effective strategies.
Lastly, we don’t solely rely on one tool. We cross-verify using a variety of tools to ensure accuracy before finalising your audit results.
I Am on a Limited Budget, Can I Still Get an SEO Audit?
Definitely, yes. An extensive SEO audit is a crucial step towards elevating your website’s return on investment.
Our experience has shown that thorough SEO audits, complemented with prioritised action plans, form the backbone of successful organic search performance in Google and other search engines and are fundamental to effective digital marketing strategies.
Regardless of a restricted budget, this comprehensive method to enhance your site’s SEO remains the optimal route. We can conduct the website audit, offering a payment plan tailored to your cash flow requirements.
Alternatively, we can provide an abbreviated initial audit with a ‘fast-track’ approach. We’ll examine your site for SEO basics and highlight any immediate fixes or potential quick wins. This provides a strong foundation, which you can build upon later, ensuring you’re in step with search algorithms.
Is an SEO Audit a One-Time Task, or Do You Need to Conduct Technical SEO Checks Repeatedly?
The initial website audit is a one-time task, yet considering the constant algorithm changes by search engines (like Google), it’s beneficial to conduct what we refer to as a ‘mini audit’ roughly every six months.
These can be integrated into your SEO strategy if you decide to proceed with our services. These mini audits ensure your website stays current with any new modifications to how Google compiles its index and ranking in the search results, thereby maintaining your visibility online amidst evolving search algorithms.
Please contact us any time for help with your website, online store or digital marketing solutions. With 50+ team members across 6 time zones, we can usually respond quickly.
